Your time is a most valuable gift. We encourage parents, grandparents, alumni, and employees to participate actively in the school community through volunteerism.
The BCS community is a family, and as such we encourage all, parents and alumni, to take an active role in school life. If you live near Moulton Hill, we encourage you to visit BCS often, attending events and volunteering for co-curricular programs and events. If you are boarding parents or more distant alumni, we hope you will connect with the BCS community regularly by following school activities on the BCS website and social media, by attending major events like the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols and the Annual Review of the BCS Cadet Corps, and by attending BCS Alumni & Friends events held around the world each year. Reach out and let us know you are interested in getting involved and helping.
My wife and I have had the opportunity to get involved with BCS for events such as Orange Shirt Day (which commemorates the victims of the Indian Residential School system in Canada), salmon cookouts showcasing traditional methods of cooking, in-class visits with students to share Mi’kmaq history and traditions, and a mini Pow Wow showcasing Indigenous drummers, singers, and dancers.

Every year, we host a career day. We invite alumni and parents to share their expertise and experience with our students. Whether starting out on their career journey or seasoned experts, the experience shared by presenters provides great first-hand insight. Presenters have included celebrated authors, athletes, movie producers, scientists, and leaders in business and the arts. For our students as they consider their future the wealth of experience and perspective shared opens a world of opportunity and understanding.
We strive to open doors to internship opportunities for our students. It is well recognized that internship experiences can have a profound impact on a student’s learning. Internships are a window into the working world. The BCS community, with its vast spectrum of opportunities, locally and internationally, can be an important contributor to hands-on work experiences for our students. Internships can be of varying duration, complexity, and in all fields of work, from business to hospitality services, and everything in between. If you are interested in providing an internship opportunity to one of our students please contact us at the link below.
Alumni Ambassadors are leaders who help maintain the ties between fellow classmates and the school. They work together with the Advancement Office to foster relationships between alumni and cultivate and strengthen the alumni community network living in over 90 countries worldwide. They also help by informing us of any milestones, updating contact information, asking for feedback, and keeping classmates informed on current news and activities at the school. Social connections and networking opportunities abound in this role, and we welcome your participation!
Be sure to look out for regular communications from your Class Alumni Ambassador as this program continues to grow. If you have not been contacted by an ambassador, or you are interested in becoming an ambassador yourself, please reach out to us at the Alumni Office directly at the link below.
BCS is the kind of place that gives indiscriminately. It is packed full of teachers, houseparents, faculty, and staff who all give so much of their time for the students they love. It is filled with passionate individuals who constantly seek to better the community and promote and inclusive environment. BCS made me into the person I am today so, with this in mind, it's only natural that I would want to give back.

Class Reunions and Homecoming
Every year in the fall, all are welcome back to BCS to reconnect with fellow alumni and remember your time at BCS. It is a weekend to visit the campus, to meet the current students and hear first-hand about the BCS experience—its similarities and how it has changed over the years. It is a time to rekindle ties with faculty and staff and re-acquaint yourself with all that the Townships area has to offer. The 10th, 20th, 25th, 30th, 40th, and 50th milestone reunion years are also celebrated.

Friends of BCS Hockey
Friends of BCS Hockey is a group of alumni, parents, and friends that have a special interest in BCS Hockey and want to be part of the team’s success. Friends of BCS Hockey was formed by the organizers of the ongoing annual February Alumni Hockey Tournament which began with a puck-drop in Memorial Arena in 1986. With a minimum annual donation of $200 or, for alumni, $5 per year since graduation, the group provides support to the BCS hockey program. Our Prep and Varsity teams are regularly ranked in the top ten in the country, so the longstanding tradition of BCS Hockey pride continues.
Friends of BCS Rugby
It’s an exciting time at BCS, as we’re happy to introduce to you the newly formed Friends of BCS Rugby. The Friends of BCS Rugby will be comprised of passionate alumni—both young and old(er)—who truly understand what it means to embody the character and values of the sport, and who bring spirit and energy to an old crease in an even older school. We all strongly believe in the rugby crease and see a very bright future for the sport, and all those involved with it, here at BCS. Whether you’ll be standing with us at the front of the scrum, or cheering along from the touchline, we look forward to reaching those milestones with you.
The Heneker-Williams Society was created by the Board of Directors of the BCS Association to honour individuals who, by leadership and example, have set the standard for volunteer support of Bishop's College School and King's Hall, Compton.
I have supported BCS from the time I started by career. As I move towards the ‘back end’ of my career, I have been thinking about how I could better support the school with my time, energy, and even money. I’m excited about how all this could unfold.
